Emilia Clarke reveals how she would change the Game of Thrones finale
Emilia Clarke has revealed how she would change the season eight finale of Game of Thrones and, like most people following last night's ending, she has a few thoughts.
The actor, who played Daenerys Targaryen in the wildly popular HBO series, said that while she was basically fine with how the show ended, there were a couple of things that she herself would have done differently.
Essentially, given the characters more room to breathe.
She told The New Yorker:
"Well, I can only speak to my own character, and the people that I interact with on the show. But I would’ve loved some more scenes with me and Missandei. I would’ve loved some more scenes with me and Cersei."
"I would’ve loved some more scenes between Grey Worm and Missandei. I would’ve loved to see a bit more between Cersei. I feel like there was... The genocide was there. That was always going to happen."
It was, yeah. But the chat? Nowhere to be found.
Clarke went on to say that writers Benioff and Weiss have created some amazing dialogue heavy scenes between characters in the past, and that it was a bit of a shame to not have a lot of that in the final season.
"I just wanted to see a bit more of that," she said.
"I just think more dissection and those beautifully written scenes that the boys have between characters — that we are more than happy to contently sit there and watch ten minutes of two people talking, because it’s beautiful."
However, unwilling to criticise the show too much, Clarke said it wasn't really her place to "... critique the geniuses that have written eight seasons’ worth of wonderful stuff."
Fair enough, like.
